The search for the perfect small villa is never easy. Villa Rosa is a rare find - a charming, and extremely private, three bedroom property, located on the Tuscan / Umbrian border, with the benefit of an annexe and an unusually large pool surrounded by an immaculate expanse of lawn.
The villa is located just a short drive away from Orvieto, the beautiful hill town, with its cathedral, historical centre, shops and restaurants.
An easy walk from the villa (about 2 km), there is a very informal pizzeria for take away pizzas.
Those seeking relaxation will find it in abundance amid the tranquillity of Umbria's rolling hills, covered with vines and olives, cypresses, pines, oaks and chestnut trees. For those wishing to combine relaxation with day trips to towns and villages or more active pursuits, Umbria offers a wide choice. From Etruscan through Roman, mediaeval and Renaissance times, the region contains a wealth of evidence of its varied past.
An easy drive from Rome, Pisa or Perugia, Southern Umbria's hill top towns dominate the green countryside. The hill town of Todi with its attractive historical centre, stunning piazza and breathtaking views draw weekend visitors from Rome and it is a good spot for an evening stroll and ice cream.
For those staying near the Lazio border, a day trip to Rome is a must. Home of the Vatican, the first stop for most visitors is the wealth of artistic treasures in its museums. There is too much to take in on one day but the Roman Forum and Colosseum are an easy walk from the central shopping streets, as well as the pretty cobbled streets of the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps and Piazza Navona.
The house incorporates the best of Umbrian craftmanship - beautiful terracotta floors, ceilings with wooden beams, and large French doors leading from the sitting room and bedrooms on to the the extensive terraces. Walking bare foot from the comfortable master bedroom onto the covered terrace, and enjoying a leisurely breakfast al fresco whilst admiring the spectacular views, is an unforgettable experience.

The pool area is an exceptional place to relax in and spend the day, with guests enjoying the added bonus that in the heart of Mediterranean Italy can be found an expanse of green lawn that would complement the finest English country house.
